My handheld tries to hotsync automatically with out any such instructions and this goes on untill it does not find the system it has to connect. The process continues again after few seconds. This is killing my battery.
Please help me out with a solution to this.
Try looking in your "hot sync". If you normally use the usb cable to sync, make sure it is showing on the main screen. It could be trying to connect via bluetooth or IR if someone is close. Also look in your "preferences" and make sure there is not a bogus connection setup. Hope it helps.

Make sure bluetooth is turned off and the usb cable is not connected. Then do the following:
•Tap the hotsync icon •Notice the words 'Local | Modem' side by side on the screen •Tap 'Modem' •Select 'Standard Modem' in drop-down list •Enter any phone number (eg. 800-525-6452 *this is a non-working number) •Press the Home button
Now hotsync should stop trying to sync automatically. When you want to run a hotsync Tap on 'Local' in the hotsync screen.

Dear Toda ;]
Get an anti virus for palm os and run it, then reload the palm software.
another thing to try that worked on a different device is to rename the Back-up folder to Old-Back or some other name. Do a hotsync. This usually works.
Then open your old-back folder and install the programs and data to the handheld. Then do a final hot sync.
Hope this helps.
First open the HotSync custom menu, start changing conduits to do nothing. Work your way down the list until you end up with a complete HotSync. If you still have the 6410 error, unplug the USB adapter, replug and try your HotSync again. The USB adapter may be the week link in this equation.
If your cradle is connected to a serial port, you will need to ensure that HotSync Manager is configured to use Serial Ports. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click the HotSync Manager icon in the Windows system tray.
2. If there is a check mark next to the 'Local Serial' menu item, then you are already configured.
3. If there is not a check mark, click the 'Local Serial' option.
For more information, refer to the handbook that came with your handheld. If you did not uninstall your previous version of Palm Desktop, the configuration will be done automatically.
